My parents won’t let me have a phone! I’ve tried everything!?

All of my friends have phones, my parents know this, so every time I go out with them, she has me text her from their phone! It would be reasonable to get a phone right? Not the way my mom sees it! She says I should wait 2 more years for high school, and is even thinking about college. I have literally tried everything and this has been going on for a year now. I need advice!

    Sounds like your friends, all need to start telling you no, if you need to text, you need your own phone or money for a pay phone.

    So when they ask why you are calling so late, you just say, had to find a pay phone. Your parents are hoping you will stop asking, so do that stop and comply. There is no good reason your friends need to hand over their phones for you to contact your parents. So unless it's a true emergency, stop asking friends for their phones. They want you to stay in touch, "they" provide the means to do so, be that a phone or money for payphones/phone cards.

    That doesn't even make sense. It could be fake news.

    Do you have to money to buy the phone and pay for the plan yourself?

    Phones and phone plans can be expensive. Perhaps your parents don't want to added expense of paying for your phone.

      Work doing what? Do you have a job? If so, save up the money and ask again later.
